New Jersey Man Went Behind Bars After Allegedly Sex Trafficked Two Teenage Girls In New York
Walter “Laron” Melvin, 29 years old, was accused of two counts each of sex trafficking of two teenage girls over the reported prostitution plan for over several weeks, reported by the DA’s office. He was taken to the court on Friday in the New York State Supreme Court.
Every charge against the suspect is a class B felony under New York State Law.
